Eterna - Built On Tradition
Founded in 1856 in Grenchen, Switzerland, Eterna has a long-standing history of producing mechanical watches, renowned for their precision and craftsmanship. The brand is famous for introducing the Eterna-Matic in 1948, which was different when compared with other automatic movements of that time. This innovative self-winding calibre featured a ball-bearing mounted rotor system, which greatly improved the efficiency and durability of automatic watches. Prior to the invention of the Eterna-Matic, the brand garnered attention for its KonTiki timepiece, which survived 101 days of Pacific winds and currents, and travelled all the way to Polynesia from the coasts of Peru. It wasn’t until the late 1950s that the KonTiki acquired its badge of serial production.
Eterna is also known for pioneering the five-ball-bearing rotor system, which was conceived in 1948 and has become a standard in modern automatic watch movements. This design enhances the rotor's stability and reduces friction, resulting in better accuracy and longer-lasting performance.
Armed with a rich horological legacy, Eterna continues to produce timepieces that combine classic craftsmanship with contemporary design elements, which appeal to both watch enthusiasts and fashion-conscious consumers.
In 2004, Eterna designed and built the 6036 movement for the Porsche Design P’6910 Indicator. Composed of 800 components, it displayed elapsed time spans digitally and featured four barrels, which made it one of the most complex series-manufactured movements of its time.
Today, Eterna offers three different collections: Eternity, Kontiki, and Heritage. The Eternity collection embodies timeless elegance that the brand is known for and these watches feature simple yet sophisticated designs, suitable for both formal and casual occasions. The KonTiki collection is inspired by the legendary Kon-Tiki expedition, and celebrates the spirit of exploration and adventure. These timepieces showcase robust and durable designs that are apt for outdoor activities and sports. The Heritage collection pays homage to Eterna’s rich history in fine watchmaking. These timekeepers often blend classic design elements with modern innovations, appealing to those with a penchant for vintage aesthetics.
